For specialists

Once a patient has been diagnosed with MSCC, the referrer should visit www.referapatient.org.  

When the referrer is logged on, they will be able to refer the patient by submitting the online referral form.

At this point, the images should be sent via Image Exchange Portal to UCLH.

The referrer should then call the co-ordinator on 07903 531 674. This number is available 24/7.
The co-ordinator will be in touch within 2 hours of receiving all relevant information.

If the patient requires surgery, a bed will be ring-fenced for the patient and the team will be on stand-by to receive the patient. The co-ordinator will let the referrer know the location of this bed.

The referring hospital will be responsible for making appropriate transport arrangements for transfer of the patient to the National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery.

The National Hospital for Neurology and Neurosurgery will be responsible for arranging transport at the time of repatriation of the patient following treatment.

If you have any queries, please call the co-ordinator on 07903 531 674.
